{PHOTOBLAST} Do What Thou Wilt . . . [ 11.15.13 / Vintage Photographic Inspiration]

EOF Photoblast- Do What Thou Wilt - The Truth is in the Dirt on the Ground (1940s Snapshot)

+ “Do What Thou Wilt”+

Famous lines spoken by this century’s supreme occultist and libertarian muse, Aleister Crowley. It expresses the very nature of living which is to indulge in one’s senses, and even become one with one’s vices to create a total engagement with oneself that is far apart from self criticism, judgement, or nagging conflict.

It’s a pervasively positive outlook on life, really; one that begs you to be free. The most unique thing you can be, really, is yourself, and no God or society should hold that against you. It’s your right.

It is a philosophy embraced by millions around the world, and a magic realist way of living that has influenced countless art forms in the last century; most especially music, with Crowley being a inspiration to The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, and countless numbers of heavy metal rock groups.

It’s a doctrine as old as time itself, really, and with the re-release of Crowley’s Original Wax Recordings by Mr. Suit we felt it to be the perfect inspiration for a little vintage photographic inspiration- {PHOTOBLAST}, as we like to call it here, at The Eye of Faith.

After all, it’s been a long while since we’ve featured one of our timeless collages of vintage musings on the site, and just thought- you know what, you guys are worth it!!

So, please, whatever you do- ENJOY!

And, always remember

“Do What Thou Wilt”,

whatever you do.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Eye of Faith‘s own Aaron Robert Duarte took the street, and captured some magic moments that really showcase our neighbourhood’s most unique quality. There is a great blend of past and present, old and new, and nature and man-made that make this a one-of-a-kind corner of the globe that must be showcased and admired.

Also, if you are in Toronto this weekend, make sure to make a stop in the Junction this Sunday, and visit {theEye} at the Junction Flea. The event is from 9am – 4pm, and is located in the empty lot on Indian Grove and Dundas Street West – the original outdoor location where the Junction Flea was born. Admission is $2.

City and Coloured Kids!

Style stars are driven by ambition and rebellion! Youth of today surely embrace the idea of standing out, we say “Kudo’s Kids!”. We here at E.O.F. love the twist of a turban, or the pop of a feather with a fedora but nothing compares to somebody pulling off neon hair! A style we’ve talked about before, will surely be a style we will talk about again and again. But until then, here are a few of the kids who are bold and beautiful.

If you dyed your hair a wild colour today, what colour would you pick??
